|The PlatinumChick and Rogue Rod|
conspire in "Severed Seas"
While I loved the role-play between characters--though, admittedly, there were probably 2 more seats at the table than really necessary or comfortable--this was maybe the first Rogue game I wasn't particularly enamored of. For the first half of the adventure, tension was high as we began exploring the Antonov and the atoll it had crashed on. Something big had created a huge hole in the hull, and not a single crewmember was to be found. However, as we made our way through the adventure, the GM unwittingly took the horror right out of his own adventure. When a hideous beastie made an appearance, the initial reaction was fear...until he let it slip that they were simple Deep Ones. At that point, the guns came out and bullets flew...and the horror went down the drain. And, for the record, why did everyone have a gun? Surely the physicist and the archaelogist shouldn't randomly be carrying a revolver and a double-barreled shotgun, respectively!

As I mentioned earlier, I'll post a little more about what I picked up from C7 and the other booths during my Wednesday entry: my swag report and post-con wrap-up. Till then, I'm going to just relax! It's sleepy-time, fellow gamers!
In the meantime, enjoy my pictures from Saturday and Sunday at my my Origins Facebook album!
